In an earlier post I noted that I had found two of the three species of sundew that occur in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, but had not yet located the Round-leaved Sundew (Drosera rotundifolia). My search came to an end in late July while I was hiking in Colliers Mills Wildlife Management Area. I was busy photographing several flowers and was about to walk away when I noticed the a small patch was covered in sundew. It only took a couple moments to locate this Round-leaved sundew.
This was a pretty good summer for pine barrens plants, my first year of really attempting to learn about the botany of this amazing area. I have a few more photos to process and plan to have them posted soon. In the meantime, I’d love to hear what you think about my sundews!
